A wonderful reserve for bird lovers. The guide was knowledgeable and a committed birder. It was encouraging to see the continued growth of this area and the addition of albatross to the list of birds. Well worth the visit. Check website for hours and tour...More

There are not many things that one can miss on Oahu but this is one of them. Tucked away on the island is this beautiful refuge. Don;'t miss if you are driving around the island.

Drove in but was closed. A bit disappointed. Large property. Wanted to see some nature away from the beach and crowds. This would of been the place. Good to see they are trying to save some of the area.

Call ahead to get the tour times. Show up, borrow binoculars (high quality, free) and follow a guide through this lovely refuge. We saw several endangered birds, learned about migrations and beak types and generally enjoyed the lovely setting. A real gem.

We thought this would be a scenic side trip. Took the road down to the end by the sewage plant only to find the refuge is closed to the public. Wasted our time but the portapotty was spotless.😁

Enthusiastic local gave us a very informative talk/walk of the birds we could see on the day and what birds would use the facility during migration. Very enjoyable and free.

Definitely call before you go. It is open only on Saturday for a 90 minute guided tour at 9am. Gates close and you cannot come late. Open only when stilts and coots and moorhens are done nesting, so from about mid-October to January. Very short...More

I understand that budget cuts and retirements have taken their toll on Hawaii refuges and we noticed it. We stopped off on an independent birding tour and saw a few birds from the roadway. It is great that the refuge exists and the they have...More
